Winner of the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1978 at the age of 21, the Russian pianist, conductor and composer Mikhail Pletnev has for long enjoyed a distinguished international career. He reached to top of the world as a genius pianist with deep intellect and perfect technique, and charmed the audience in the world with a talent like magic also as a conductor or a composer simultaneously. Therefore, his announcement of not to play the piano again after completed all the Beethoven piano concerti recordings in 2006 was a shock to the audience in the world. He returned to the stage as concert pianist with Kremerata Baltica in March 2013. His concerts elsewhere are highly praised by the public as ‘…unbelievable concert. Hard to believe that it is by a pianist who has been away from the stage more than six years!’ Audience should not miss the chance of hearing him again, with the programme featuring works by Bach and Scriabin.
